Nice view of the city on a good day. Go in the center of the monument (the elogio del horizonte), you can hear the waves in a very special way.

Arrived and parked in the port. . Very cheap on road parking. The walk through the park was lovely with lots of areas for people to exercise. Skate board, exercise their animals. The view from the top was worth the walk in the heat. . GIJON is laid out before you as a panorama across the sweeping bay and beach... More

We walk to the top of that area recently and it was amazing look at the horizon. It was a hard and steep walk but it worthit.

A real oasis of calm after Gijon city, yet right on the edge of it. It is steep and hilly however, so a bit of work to get up to the top (around 40m vertically I think). Excellent views from the top. Probably best to just meander around for an hour or so as an escape from the city (it's... More

Lovely walk to the top and fantastic views. There is a skateboard park at the bottom. Nice way to spend an hour or two.

After walking in the historic city center, this is where to go next. Open park (also for dogs) to wander around and enjoy the endless views to the sea.

We walked around here on a cold and wet day in November. The charm might have been lost on us, as we certainly couldn't see much of the views. There was a lot of very fresh air, but I think that this is somewhere best seen in the summer or better weather. The sculpture doesn't look at its best in... More

We did a trip to Gijon just for the day and went to the Cerro as a starting point. The walks are lovely, there are lots of little restaurants and we ended at the Play San Lorenzo. We parked a little away, at the Plaza de Europa and loved walking through the town.

Great for a typical park walk (though up a pretty steep hill!) and gives great views of both sides of the city of Gijón; to the east, sunny beaches and bustling shopping areas, and to the west, the cold industrial harbour, which in its own way is quite appealing. However, the epic cliff-edge is also interrupted by that strange sculpture... More

This can be a nice little walk, you can see remains of the old fort (nothing spectacular) and the new statue. If you want to spend some time walking, taking in fresh air from the sea, this is it.
